7. Oscar De La Renta with Dr Dre for limited edition
The magic of rapsters and their somewhat auras seems to have a charming effect on everything they associate themselves with, specially limited edition electronics. After creating some really ‘blinged’ headphones such as the Detox Pro and the Beats Rose crystal, Dr. Dre as a brand has once again joined hands with Oscar de La Renta for the Beats limited edition headphones. What first appeared like a pair of ear mufflers, actually turned out to be a pair of designer headphones, truly ‘different’ though they may be. Once you figure out the lifestyle of the folks from the hip-hop world, it makes no real sense to stick to something that’s just about ending at sophistication. Instead, hope for something truly outlandish and sometimes a bit tacky too, which we guess would be the fair assessment of these headphones. Made with plum tinted faux fur, these Beats headphone come as a real surprise taking into consideration, that the one of the most noted Dominican designers have been a part of the project. Luckily, the hip-hop geeks will have the good luck of listening to some high quality sound, kind-of weird though it may look to the others. Since the technology within the device is the same as before, the output of sound will never really take a seat back in terms of customer satisfaction. So, if you are looking to stand out by the virtue of your choice of style for electronics aesthetics, the Dr Dre headphones are for you, but with a $695 price tag. Also, do hurry in as we hear that there won’t be too many apparently!
